CALL FOR TEXTS BY VISUAL ARTISTS:

MATERIAL is awakening from dormancy in order to go out with a slow bang! We're accepting writing submissions for our 5th and final issue between now and November 15, 2019. Please send only PDF files of your texts to materialpress5@gmail.com
MATERIAL is a home for divergent opinions, uses, and appropriations of language, encouraging “speculations and appreciations, rantings if need be, phantasies, lectures, nocturnes...and inventions.”(*). We solicit friction and conviviality both, from a wide community of artists.
